Customer Question
2009 detroit dd15 with...

2009 detroit dd15 with very slow throttle response up to 1200 to 1300 rpm then its got plenty of power. I have 7 of them i maintain in my fleet of 23 trucks and normally they dont kick my butt but this one has. All new filters cleaned filter housings. every time it falls under 1300 rpm its flat as can be no power

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Truck Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

I need someone with a good understanding of a dd15 fuel system

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the truck mechanic to know before I connect you?

900000 on the truck. DD15 with a Eaton smart shift transmission. truck has been flawless until now. never an issue

have you verified the egr is not stuck open??

if you have a fuel pressure gauge, what is the fuel pressure at the fuel module test port??

at lower rpm, is the intake throttle valve open and not slamming shut??

do you have the DDDL program to monitor the fuel pressure??

throttle pedal voltage?? have you verified at the idle range??

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
we have dddl and the throttle response is showing to be 100 percent when the pedal is activated. new throttle valve and it is working correctly. truck has had a dpf delete done but no performance issues after that.
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

100% when???

what about egr and fuel pressure??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I havent checked the fuel pressure and the egr valve seems to be working correctly. Throttle pedal works correctly thru the pedal travel
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
At 1300 rpm it takes off like a rocket plenty of power from there up to the top of the rpm range
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
sluggish response at 1300 and lower rpm is the only issue no codes
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
with plenty of pulling power above 1300 wouldnt that eliminate a fuel pressure issue?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

ok, maybe depending on the pressure at idle

also, what about the delta P sensor?? did you remove it and inspect for coolant on the sensor and the passages are clear to the cold pipe??

also, the voltage of the delta P??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I removed it and cleaned it but no change cleaned the passages too (common issue). i swaped it with another known good part reads 14.52
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

14.5?? really

it should only read between ,5 and 1 volt.

also, did you calibrate your used one prior to installation??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no i didnt. let me plug back up and do that and get some accurate data
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
back to you in a few
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

make sure you calibrate it with it off the truck in ambient air

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok delta p is .31 at idle and 1.28 at full throttle
smoke control 0
Baro 14.53
idle rail pressure 350 - 352
full throttle 530 and fluctuating slightly maybe 10 to 15 lbs
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

is the idle steady?? quantity control valve reading correctly?? not a hunting idle??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Idle is smooth
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

what about the overhead?? has that been done???

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no but this problem started after a filter change fine one day and dead the next
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

was there any debris in the small fuel filter??

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
very little
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
is there pressure regulators that could be stuck open not letting it build pressure?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Are the rail pressures right that i gave you ?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

then it leads me toward injectors.

if the regulator was the issue you would be able to see it bleeding off on the return line. use your red dot heat detector to see if fuel is bleeding off.

the high side is low but if that was an issue, it would have high rpm issue

the low side is just below what it should be and that may be the issue

I just dont understand how it can be injectors from one start up to the next. could be
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

dirt that came from when you removed the fuel filters. that small filter is the key to debris.

Roy

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
that would cause low power on the bottom side of the rpm range but fine up top?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 year ago

yep, irregular fuel pattern or dripping injectors and the ecm is adjusting the fuel map.

My 2002, 2002 freightliner 60 series detroit, Nothing for
Nothing for the only problem it has right now which is it wont restart when its warmed up. 1st thing ice cold it starts fine a7 will restart again and again. After its warm if you turn it off to refuel it will not restart for 30 to 45 mins. But it all started a couple of days ago. About 5:00 pm I was finally fully loaded with cars and started heading out of Ocooe FL for Columbia SC when I hit the Interstate the engine wouldn't rev but to about 1300 rpm's and then die but not shut off it kept firing back up as soon as the rpm's dropped below 1300. It ran normal as long as the rpm's were under 1300. So after stopping to see if there was any thing I could see wrong and I didn"t , I drove from Ocoee FL to about the SC state line at 54 mph when it started to improve a little. By the time I got to Columbia it would run 65 mph a while then start to die and come back below 1300 rpm then get better again. At Columbia I refueled and added a gallon of lucus fuel treatment, and notice air bubbles raising from the bottom of both fuel tanks. when I tried to restart the engine it would not start for about 30 mins. it spun over real good just didn't start up. When it did start I never shut it off til I finished my run delivering cars and got home . After the refuel I slept with engine idling and it has never run better since. But now ever time I shut it off warmed up or even just after running 5 or 10 mins. it will not restart for about 30 mins. or so. … read more
